Punta Higuero Lighthouse, also known as Faro de Punta Higuero, is an historic lighthouse located in Rincón, Puerto Rico. The original building was built in 1892 by the Spanish government and was rebuilt in 1922 by the United States Coast Guard.

In 1892 the original light was built as a fixed white, 6th order dioptric station and had a 6-mile-range (9.7 km) light beam. According to the Historic American Engineering Record, «Its Mediterranean appearance came from an elaborate combination of exposed and indented brick work in the facades—around doors and windows—and corners.» The «castle» look was further emphasized by reddish stucco imitating stone-work on all facades and the very elaborate exposed brick cornice topped by a parapet built in lace-like brick-work. The lighthouse was severely damaged by the 1918 earthquake that struck the west part of the island.

List of lighthouses in Puerto Rico — frwiki.

wiki

Map of Puerto Rico

List of lighthouses in Puerto Rico : The island is the easternmost of the Greater Antilles. A former Spanish colony, it has been part of the Autonomous Commonwealth of the United States since 1898. Lighthouses are located in isolated and highly visible areas with good visibility towards the sea. The 16 lighthouses that remain in Puerto Rico include 11 historic lighthouses built by the Spanish before the US annexation. Some of these Spanish lighthouses are revered national monuments, but a few more are derelict and endangered. At 19In 00, the United States Lighthouse Board assumed responsibility for the lighthouses, which had been maintained by the Coast Guard since 1939 and then by local authorities.

In 1981, Puerto Rico’s lighthouses were listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2000, the government of Puerto Rico listed it on the National Register of Historic Places in Puerto Rico (c) . Some lighthouses have been completely restored and are open to the public. In 2001, under the National Historic Lighthouse Protection Act (in), the flagship off Cape San Juan became the first lighthouse to be donated to an NGO in Puerto Rico.
